    I don't know if this show is all fake, half fake, all real, half real, but I find it hysterical and intriguing on multiple levels.

    It's 100% fake. The Amish don't let themselves get photographed or videotaped. Ever.

    Also, married Amish men have to grow beards.

    Yeah it's all ******** like their (Discovery Channel) last series fixated around a so-called criminal organization, The Devil's Ride.

    And there's the whole using guns and having tattoos thing. Amish folks aren't allowed to do either.

    Yea, whoever is behind this doesn't know much of anything about Amish people.

    It really saddens me the depths to which formerly educational channels have sunk.

    Hmm... funny...

    Why couldn't this be on Adult Swim right between Children's Hospital and Delocated?

    It takes a special brand of **** to make the Kardashians show look less awful. Well done, Discovery. :o

    The great thing about this show is that real Amish wont really do anything about the misrepresentation of their culture.

    I cracked up at that "Amish" chick doing a handstand on the keg. ****ing ridiculous.

    What is funny is I live in Lancaster County, Pa and found this hard to believe. But they do make it appear realistic.

    The guy with the tattoos is a Mennonite not Amish.

    Looks pretty fake. As someone else mentioned many of them must be Mennonites to be running around with tattoos.

    I expected this to be about that crazy Amish cult leader that was having his men attack other Amish men and cut off their beards. That's more like an "Amish mafia" and is also an actual thing.

    I was flipping through channels and caught this. Thought it was pretty funny and watchable, even if bogus.
